    I have been working at CACI International full-time

    Pros

    The CEO is smart and cares. This creates a tone at the top that tells employees that they matter. Leadership is strategic and collaborative. They are focused on growth and innovation but not at the expense of the employees. This came through loud and clear when the company absorbed 100% the price increase in benefits for FY18.

    Cons

    Nothing to report at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire and invest in great people.

    I worked at CACI International (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - They can't find candidates so you have a lot of negotiating power when it comes to salary negotiations
    - Competitive benefits including training opportunities

    Cons

    - Management changes every six months
    - They're not winning new business so there's no bench or opportunities for growth
    - They don't have a solid vision or corporate identity
    -New executives are cut throat

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the tenants of solid ethics and take care of your employees. Dr. London founded the company with a vision that has gotten lost.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best technical people I've ever worked with. True work/life balance. Time off whenever needed without question and you can make up the time if you don't want to burn vacation. No micromanagement.

    Cons

    CACI is having trouble keeping some long-term contracts. Not sure if it is complacency or a sign of the times. In the trench managers should do more to prepare team members to transition to other projects rather than wait until the last minute and no one has a job or a place to go.

    Advice to Management

    I know there is a fine line on profits, but it is wise to hold a bench of some of your best and brightest people. Otherwise, you will lose them to the competitor. I watched this happen on my last project and now with the existing project where we are losing 60-70% of the people.

    Pros

    Great management, low stress work environment, pay is decent, low supervision; your allowed to just do your job free of management as long as you do it accurately., decent benefits.

    Cons

    after 3 years here, I'm finding it hard for growth with the company due to not having a clearance. No one wants to sponsor me or help after obtaining my master's degree and investing 3 years. As a contractor, I received my first raise on the second year. overall, their a great company but doesn't feel good when there's no growth potential with a company

    Advice to Management

    be willing to invest or work with your long term employees to keep them.

    I worked at CACI International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In hindsight, working for CACI was great! I started as a subcontractor and was brought onto CACI as an employee after about 9 months. CACI offered me more pay and better benefits as an employee for them. I also felt like I had more job security.

    I worked as a Law Clerk for the Department of Justice through CACI for a total of three years. My Project Manager was easy to get along with and pretty flexible. I always felt comfortable talking to him and even after leaving for another government contractor, I have gone back to him for help getting another job with CACI.

    Cons

    No telework option available with government contract I was on.

    I worked at CACI International full-time

    Pros

    Paycheck, Overpriced Healthcare, Employment status

    Cons

    Poor reputation in their operating space
    "fail up" policy leading to incompetence at many levels
    Believe that people are just "Widget Makers" and easily replaced
    Offers lipservice to "core values" but found hollow in practice
    Demands absolute loyalty, but returns absolutely none
    Initiative crushing tactics, where you're punished for having it, then it is demand from you.
    Fifdom building alive and well.
    Often you will find yourself "entapped", your wrong no matter what you try to do

    Advice to Management

    See cons above
